Your Instructional Design Technology Specialist is available to discuss various assessment formats with you to help you determine the best option(s) for your course. The best option may not be a proctored examination. If you choose to incorporate proctored exams into your distance courses, please refer to the proctoring services available for your distance course format as outlined below.
Proctored exams for these courses are administered by high school personnel. High schools must have the proctor(s) associated with Advanced Scholars courses sign the proctor agreement form, which is to be returned to the Advanced Scholars Program Coordinator prior to the beginning of each semester. Your Instructional Design Technology Specialist will set up a proctor code for your Advanced Scholars course for all high school proctors to use.
A class roster, proctor list and codes associated with those students will be emailed to you from the Advanced Scholars program. We ask you to please send the proctor(s) information about your examination requirements and projected exam schedule at the beginning of each semester. You should also plan to contact the proctors at least one week before each exam is scheduled with more details.
Semester-based "X" Courses
Because enrollment in "X" courses is limited to on-campus UNL students, they are expected to take their exams at one of the on-campus testing centers. Your Instructional Design Technologist Specialist will provide information about forwarding your desired exam schedule to the appropriate testing center.
Semester-based "S" Courses
When proctored exams for "S" courses are administered by professionals outside of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, faculty can request assistance with the proctor approval process by contacting their college's instructional design technology specialist.
Students must identify a proctor and have their proctor complete the proctor agreement form. The form is then returned to the Office of Online & Distance Education Student Services Coordinator at the beginning of the semester (no later than two weeks prior to the first exam). Your Instructional Design Technology Specialist will set up a proctor code and submit it to the Office of Online & Distance Education Student Services Coordinator for the outside proctors to use.
